Barn treasures

We've started doing some sorting and cleaning out in the barns. 

We've uncovered some items that are "treasures" and others that are unknowns. 

We know that this is a wheel weight for a tractor, but we don't know for what kind of tractor. 

The grooved front has a number stamped on it that might be 1957.  The back of it is plain.

I remember putting this in the back of my Chevy Nova hatchback in the wintertime in the mid 70's to help provide some traction.  Did I mention that it's very, very heavy?

We uncovered this lawn mower and are trying to get the wheels turning again.

I don't remember what this was called, but it predates weed eaters. 

I remember my grandfather keeping the blade sharp, and he would swing it to whack weeds along the ditches.
